Planet Earth: A Great Place to Be

Posted on May 13, 2014 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  If you think a full moon rising over the horizon is beautiful, just imagine being on the moon and seeing your planet overhead in the sky! Now for you couples, that would be romantic! NASA recently came out with a remarkable “Earth Day” satellite photo of our planet. Besides being breath-taking, one of the things it shows is the circulation in the atmosphere as noticed in the partial cloud cover. That is so important for us to have a home where we can breathe and...

Ancient walk on the beach

Posted on May 1, 2014 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  People have asked me about the reports of footprints of a human ancestor, which were uncovered by recent tides, being found in England. An article came out a couple of weeks ago in The Telegraph (April 21, 2014)  in regards to some tracks that were preserved in soft sedimentary rock. It referenced an older article (Feb, 7, 2014) by Richard Gray, a science correspondent, entitled 900,000 year old footprints of earliest northern Europeans discovered. Researchers think...

All in the family! Part 2

Posted on Apr 23, 2014 in Stepaneks from the Front | 0 comments

  Research on the Neanderthal genome has revealed modern humans and Neanderthals could interbreed with one another.  This means Neanderthals and modern humans are all of the same kind, or family. In other words, Neanderthals are just a variation of humans. The following is from an article on the New Scientist website entitled, “Breeding with Neanderthals helped humans go global,” by Michael Marshall. “The publication of the Neanderthal genome last year...

Those Stubborn Mules

Posted on Apr 18, 2014 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  I really appreciate people sending me articles. Thanks, Frank, for the one regarding the mule! One of the tests we have imposed on the term “species” is that of reproduction. If two animals can reproduce and if the offspring is viable (meaning the offspring can reproduce), then we say the original pair are of the same “species.” It has been a common thought that mules, which are the hybrids between horses and donkeys, do not reproduce. That would mean that the donkey...

Work …a Blessing or Curse?

Posted on Apr 11, 2014 in Stepaneks from the Front | 0 comments

  WORK.  What thoughts come to mind when you hear this word?  Are they in a positive or a negative light? Do you like to work? I have been thinking about work and its value for the past few weeks. Since my cancer surgery four months ago, I basically had the “privilege” of being served by others. This was primarily my dear husband and my family, who provided almost everything I needed. They brought me many meals in bed, washed many dishes, and served me in...

75 Years of Commitment

Posted on Apr 2, 2014 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  My parents, Irwin and Barbara Nutting, just celebrated their 75th wedding anniversary. First of all, that is hardly heard of because of the age attainments necessary. Secondly, many people are amazed at 75 years because of the fact that people these days seem to drift in and out of relationships with little commitment to each other long-term. I realize that circumstances can make a marriage seem unbearable, but so many trials that cause many people to split apart,...

The Ken Ham/Bill Nye Debate – Thoughts

Posted on Feb 12, 2014 in Marianis from the Front | 0 comments

In researching about both speakers, they have two very different worldviews, perspectives, and goals. Ken Ham has been very active sharing his perspective and worldview for practically all of his life. He started out teaching public school science in Australia, but eventually moved to the US to work with Creation ministries. Bill Nye has been a popular science teacher for many years, and recently, he has been especially outspoken on what he perceives are the dangers of...

God’s Timing is Impeccable!

Posted on Jan 29, 2014 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  A couple of weeks ago, I called a friend of our ministry, Don Holmes, to see if he would help spread the word regarding AOI’s family camps as well as our Creation Action Boot Camps.  These are camps which we are offering this coming summer for teens and families with teens. I knew that Don helped in connecting a lot of churches and youth groups, both in Texas and in other states, with appropriate mission and camp opportunities. I also anticipated that those youth...

“Wet Glue”

Posted on Jan 28, 2014 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  This is not an unknown revelation … things break. Some of these broken things can be repaired if we can only stick them back together. The first item many of us turn to for repairs is duct-tape or bailing-wire; however, if you try to put a vase, or fine china, back together using duct-tape, the results are far from satisfactory – and a wire repair on such items is preposterous. So our next option for restoration is some type of glue product. Two of the most versatile...

Total Surrender

Posted on Jan 24, 2014 in Stepaneks from the Front | 2 comments

  I have been thinking quite a bit lately about the term “surrender.”  In the weeks leading up to surgery, the word took on a whole new meaning.  Suddenly, so many things were out of my control.  It sometimes takes a real attitude adjustment, to release OUR control to others, even to God.  I heard a sermon during this same time period,  reminding me that I cannot question God’s path because it is different than my agenda; even when that path includes cancer.  I MUST...

“Keep on Keeping on”

Posted on Jan 10, 2014 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  There is one specific New Year’s resolution that I have had for many years. It can be summed up by the words of encouragement to Mary Jo and I from a person who was deeply impacted by the creation message. She wrote, “Keep on keeping on!” Since that note almost 25 years ago, that encouragement has been on our lips and now is also on the lips of other staff at AOI. The battle for the hearts and minds of our young people is huge and it is not going away any time soon....

Who’s Fault is it? A response…

Posted on Dec 31, 2013 in Stepaneks from the Front | 1 comment

  I received a comment on a recent blog (Who’s fault is it?), and so I wanted to respond on today’s blog. Comment: Do you think that it’s possible that God sometimes inflicts suffering to instruct us? Hear me out. The curse of the ground was to bring thorns into the work of man, to remind him that he’s the cause of his own suffering. And the animal sacrifices instituted by God in the beginning: they cost us something. It’s a little pain to show that we...
